(LARGO, FL Jan. 16, 2015) — Valpak, a leader in local print and digital coupons, is getting pumped about savings with its Valpak Wealth and Wellness Sweepstakes, giving consumers the chance to win $2,500 and weekly snack box prizes from Graze.

To help consumers get motivated about wellness and healthy eating, Valpak took an informal look into snacking by asking Facebook readers about snack habits, and here's what they found:

  • Salty fared the best, followed by fresh fruits or vegetables and then sweet stuff!
  • Favorites were apples, peanut butter, popcorn, peanuts.
  • What did they prefer to have chocolate coated? Most preferred nuts, followed by fruit and then pretzels, but also potato chips and ice cream.
  • When it comes to snacking, 30% said they get the munchies around 3 p.m., while 35% say they like to graze throughout the day. (One reader shared she even lost 62 pounds by changing her diet and having smaller meals throughout the day.)
  • Favorite snacks around the office were pretty evenly spaced with veggies, fruit and potato chips/pretzels.
  • The biggest obstacle to getting healthy is lack of time; and second place? Just being plain old lazy.

In addition to registering for the sweepstakes, consumers can also sign up on Valpak.com for a special offer from Graze: a free box of snacks delivered directly to home or office. Graze offers more than 90 unique and tasty snacks that provide a more interesting alternative than a box of granola bars sitting on your desk.

From reinvented sweet treats like the strawberry shortcake with yogurt covered strawberries & raw pistachios, to the savory super kale & edamame, with crispy kale chips and crunchy edamame beans, there's something for every taste palate. With Graze, consumers rate the snacks and the company hand-picks a snack box to send based on their dietary and taste preferences. Varieties include the "nibble box," which includes their entire range of wholesome treats, nutritious snack combinations, rolled-oat granola flapjacks, and even inventive dips & dippers. Also available is "calorie count box" with every snack falling between 50-150 calories.
